A History of the scene
Tale-Trader The Legend of Twarin
Hellblazers Delano and Ennis
by Thomas Bonin
Dicks started out in 2000 as a way for me to draw comics. I'd done a couple of collaborations but creatively, I didn't see eye to eye with the writers I was working with.
Inspired by the worlds created by both Tom Waits and William Burroughs (hence the characters names Tom and Bill) I wanted to create a comic that was limited only by my imagination (similar to Neil Gaimen's vision for The Sandman). The first issues were vignettes but since joining Local Act Comics, I am focusing on complete stories while still keeping the unexpected element that I started with.
If the mixture of mythology, entomology and Philip Marlowe get you going then this is a comic for you.
